                          Abstract

   This presentation describes efforts underway
    to increase the capabilities of metadata
    registries which will result in a new Edition
    (E3) of ISO/IEC 11179 family of standards.
    Major advancements include semantics
    management capabilities.

              What is Metadata?

   Metadata is data about data
    – It’s just plain, ordinary, everyday, garden
      variety data
    – It is found in documents, messages, images,
      sound streams, data sets, Web sites and videos
    – It provides information about the data or
      resource


             9th Open Forum for Metadata Registry, Kobe, 2006
      Why is Metadata Important?

   Promotes clearer understanding
   Helps users find information
   Promotes more efficient use/reuse of
    information
   Promotes better data management




            9th Open Forum for Metadata Registry, Kobe, 2006
    What is the Role of a Data Registry?

   Keeps facts necessary to clearly describe, inventory,
    analyze, and classify data
   Supports data standards development process and
    distribution
   Provides a source of well-formed data elements and value
    domains
   Promotes the reuse of data in Agency systems and beyond
   Enables data sharing, data integration, and data
    comparability
   Serves as the central source of metadata information
    about Agency data
